Excellent day trip. We were picked up from our hotel at 6am and we got back at midnight so it was a long day but well worth it and the time passed quickly with a stop for breakfast and other interesting stops. We had two drivers and both were friendly and gave interesting commentries on route. Ayers Rock at Uluru is spectacular close up and the history and customs of the indigenous aboriginal people is facinating.
It's a long day trip from Alice Springs, but our driver/guide kept us entertained and informed, and made rest stops. Once at Uluru, we were joined by a local guide, who gave us a tour there. It was a fascinating place, and we had ample time to take it all in before the Sunset BBQ dinner. Unfortunately, the day was rainy very rare there! and we didn't get to see a sunset. We did have the dinner, but it was slightly less than we were expecting, although adequate, and with wine! We didn't have a table that had any cover, but luckily it didn't rain during the time we had to eat.
Great but long day. Coach was comfortable and visited all the places we wanted to see. Katherine Gorge was, of course, the highlight.
Great knowledge and tour of sites. More than just the Rock but the history, of the area, plants, animals, and cultural experience was excellent. Our kids even learned something. Experience will be a great memory for our family, and happy we decided to take part in the tour.
Really wonderful and extraordinary tour. Comfortable coach and as on all our Australian tours, guide was well up on all aspects of the trip, Unfortunately we didn't see much wild life but that was not the guides' fault. On yellow River cruise saw lots of different species of birds but could not find crocodiles, Local guide was determined to find a crocodile and eventually did find one. resulted in getting back to bus late but taken in good stride by bus guide. Tour really worth doing.
Very well organized. Well-informed staff and an overall great experience. Thanks, guys!!!
Amazing - lots of walking but some stunning views and very knowledgable people. I will remember this experience for life and highly recommend anyone to do this. Some say 'why go to see a rock in the middle?' but we're so pleased we did.
Great day trip, tour guide full of information. We went in the wet season so on our Yellow Waters Tour only saw 1 crocodile.
If you only have one day like we did, this tour was worth every minute. Warren our guide for the day was fabulous. Lots of information passed on to us from his time in the top end. We were lucky with the weather. We knew full well that we could have been drenched all day from the time of year we went but were prepared for that. The rivers were rising but it only rained at one of our stops. During our boat ride along the Katherine Gorge we were lucky enough to take an amazing swim at the first waterfall. Don't miss the opportunity to do this so go prepared with your bathers or a spare set of clothes. You won't go hungry during the day. Great morning tea especially the homemade scones and then again dinner at Emerald Springs all at own expense. Lunch was provided at Katherine Gorge information centre. A very disappointing lunch - the buffet needs labels on food so people know what they are eating. If the lunch was more appetising this tour would have rated 5 star as we enjoyed every other part of the day. Thanks for a great day Warren. Paul and Alanna

This was great tour. It was well organized and professional. The staff were good at making it safe, but an entertaining experience. We had a bit over an hour riding, including spectacular sunset views of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Finished back at camel HQ, with drinks and snacks. Thank you!

It is such a wonderful experience. I will recommend it to my friends.
A very long day however the tour was perfect. We were able to see all the highlights of the area. Lighting was perfect for great Ayers Rock photos. Food was also very good.
We had a great time in Alice Springs - we found the history was very interesting of course we did the long day trip to Uluru , not realising that it was 450 km away. Trips down the ranges and several water holes was fantastic - will be going back sometime.
Late pickup from hotel and about an hour later the bus had to be replaced since air did not function.
Great tour guide was the saving grace.
It was the 1st time i book a tour and i will never do that again. Let s be fair... if you like to be herded with 30 plus people, on a strict schedule, bad food then this is for you. I do not. The ad sounded so much like personal time, adventure etc... my mistake i should know better. To top it off the bus in the morning boarded the wrong passengers and left without checking their vouchers no, i know what you are thinking, we were on time, the others were early. Fortunately the tour that that the other couple had booked realized the mistake and took us on board to meet at the breakfast place all the tours have the same itinary by the way. When we rejoined our tour, no break for us, it was their mistake but we paid the price by having a miserable breakfast in the bus because the group had theirs already. The road was uneventful, with the driver/guide mumbling in his microphone... incompreansible. No kidding. The Uluru tour, ha! ... What a view... from the bus window. We are on schedule. Bathroom every hour actualy i did not mind that and more of them than stops at Ayers Rock. Guided tour... let s move we are on schedule. If you like to take photos, i do, don t expect more than a facebook quality one with plenty of people in your frame, maddening. The return was uneventful with a really dumb movie to shut us up and a bus scaring the cars on the road because... we were on schedule. Again this is not for me, i know that now. It might be yours, no irony here and in this case it will please you. I booked another one in Cairns and after posting this warning to travellers who like freedom and time to discover i will go online and cancel it. So why 2 stars? 1 star for my experience 3 stars for what is advertized. Average then is 2 stars.
It was a lot of fun! The camel handlers were really good. I expected the camels to spit or be really smelly and they were not. Well behaved, which was good, because they got up close and personal with the person riding in the back! Would definitely recommend to others.

Early start and very late finish for this big day trip, but worth every hour and dollar!!
Had a confirmation call from the great team at AAT where I went to pay for the Park entry before departure.
Tour guides were very professional, informative, and friendly with great sense of humour for a big day.
Hadn't planned on the 50min 'add on' flight over Kakadu, but will never regret doing it at the last minute. - Breathtaking!! even over ex Ranger Uranium mine.
Yellow Waters was also a great highlight, seeing soooo many crocs, emu's, sea eagles, water buffalo, and an array of birds including cobalt blue kingfisher.
This tour from Darwin tops most others I have been on. Booking through Viator was so easy and quick.
Just remember your hat and sunscreen for some of the walks, and because of the big day, you may need some nibbles for the bus trip back. This tour should not be missed.
A long day but definitely worthwhile to get an idea of Kakadu. I would recommend the scenic flight as it gives you insight into the expanse and remoteness of Kakadu.Warraddjan centre was OK.
